The Tsumbas will welcome you with big smiles and happy faces, and you can end the days with local rice beer and thick butter tea. With a strong influence of the tradition and lifestyle from northern Tibet, these settlements of Tsum write their own story in anyone's travel diary. The destinations, intermediate settlements, Buddhist monasteries, snow-capped peaks, mountain streams, waterfalls, raging Budi Gandaki, and all the other constituents makes this trek one of its kind in the world. This trail in the shades of the Manaslu circuit gives a reflection of the whole different culture and art of living in the Himalayas.
